This week on my wishlist...

Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3) by Maggie Stiefvater

Goodreads Description:
The thrilling conclusion to #1 bestselling Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy from Maggie Stiefvater.

In Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. In Linger, they fought to be together. Now, in Forever, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threatened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes closing in.



Haunted (Dreaming Anastasia #2) by Joy Preble

Goodreads Description:
Anne Michaelson’s world turned upside down last fall when a handsome, blue-eyed and temporarily immortal Russian named Ethan informed her that she had a destiny to save the Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov, held captive for decades by the witch Baba Yaga. But Anastasia had her own thoughts about destiny. And Anne and Ethan discovered that some things aren’t so easily undone. Now, six months later, the craziness in Anne’s world hasn’t gone away. Neither have her feelings for Ethan. Anne still has powers she doesn’t fully understand. She’s still dreaming about Baba Yaga’s forest. And she’s got a new boyfriend – very normal and very sweet lifeguard, Ben Logan. As for Ethan, well, he hasn’t quite gotten over the events of last fall, either. And he definitely hasn’t gotten over Anne. In short, everyone’s haunted by something – or someone.

Enter the rusalka – a Russian folklore mermaid with a malevolent streak - and a particular interest in Anne. When Ethan suddenly returns from Europe, Anne’s world collides with the paranormal once again. Her heart torn between Ben and Ethan, Anne’s search for the rusalka’s identity reveals deep and startling secrets - including the true source of Anne’s powers.

Like Dreaming Anastasia, Haunted is a wild adventure of a tale, a genre blend of fantasy, folklore and romance.


That's all I have...for now at least. Any must have books on your wishlists? Have a great weekend everyone!

I'm looking forward to Forever, too. I'd never heard of the second series.

There's too many books I'm waiting for to list. :)

I'm reading Shiver right now. Or is it Linger? I can never remember which one is which. I'm reading the first one anyway.

Squee for FOREVER. I hadn't heard of the second series. Looks like I'll be checking that one out. But first, MATCHED awaits. Then we can finally chat about it. :)

Dude, I want both of those SO BAD. Summer is so very far away.

Colene Murphy said...

Ugh! Such a long wait! Both look great!

Natalie Aguirre said...

I can't wait for Forever too. What a great choice.

I'm so out of it, I haven't read any of these. But at least with the Shiver series, it's coming to an end so I won't have to wait impatiently to finish it! :)
